An idea worth spreading

Would you like to know how the buildings that we spend 90% of our lives in are impacting on our behaviour and wellbeing! Please take the time to fill out our survey and contribute to the research.

I'm a graduate who is passionate about how spaces dictate user wellbeing, and believe with research we can provide results that can inform architects and alike to make active design choices that could greater improve individuals and society experiences whilst deterring away from what could be bringing us down!

I'm passionate about

How buildings impact on a persons behaviour and wellbeing. Architectural design and illustration visualisation. New and innovative technology.

Behind Closed Doors: How are buildings influencing our behaviour and wellbeing!?
Thanks John for your your recommendation! I watched his 'open source architecture' talk over breakfast this morning, was very insightful. Definitely something that I will look deeper into. I am interested to find out how architects and alike know how their designs impact on a person behaviour and wellbeing, is this taught in education or just an innate process? I believe that if science can research into how buildings affect their occupiers then the evidence can inform architects to design more effective spaces with regards to our behaviour and wellbeing, whilst deterring away from what might be having a negative impact on us. The Academy of Neuroscience and Architecture (Neuroarchitecture) seems to be actively investigating similar theories.

Behind Closed Doors: How are buildings influencing our behaviour and wellbeing!?
Hi Anne, thank you for your comment. The questionnaire explains at the outset its intent to study how behaviour and wellbeing is influenced by the spaces that surround us with regard to where we live, work and play. There is no target sample, as everybody will provide useful data. The personal information is not specific enough to identify any individuals but is there for analysis comparisons. At the end of the survey you are asked if you agree to participate in the research as this gives you the option to disqualify your responses after experiencing the questions asked in the survey. I hope this clears things up but please let me know if you would like any further information.
